Happy New Year as we start 2018 in the Clinical Simulation Center. The past year was very busy and productive and we anticipate even more major events in the coming year. The following is an update on recent news and activities, including a preview of our programs at IMSH in January. Be sure to check back later this month as we publish our 2017 Year in Review report. You will be able to view a digital version of the report with links on our main web page at – https://sites.psu.edu/hersheysimulation/

2017 Research Update
This past year was very productive for Penn State simulation affiliated faculty and staff for contributions to the field. Faculty and staff affiliated with the Penn State Hershey Clinical Simulation Center had 10 peer-reviewed publications during 2017. Other academic output from the Center included 16 conference presentations, 6 poster presentations, one webinar, and one book chapter.
